  1. The latest addition to my Charles I halfcrown collection, this a type 2b. Ex Lingford, Porter, Bull (the plate coin for 127/17)
  2. I'd agree with the grade opinion on the 1887, maybe slightly less on the 1902, here's mine

    Die Numbers

    I think they are not to be relied upon, I have this die no. 49 1878 shilling which I'm (fairly) sure is fourth head Bull 3051 even though the maximum die number is stated as 47
  4. Just landed. Forging ahead with my Charles I halfcrown collection, this (my first) Briot First Milled Issue example
  5. Nice Briot portrait, my one and only Charles I Scottish example
  6. Latest addition to my Charles I halfcrown collection, this time a York Mint type 5
  7. Yes, it's a type (based on Spink and Bull / ESC classification) that I didn't have - 5 types of young head sixpence as far as I'm concerned, I'm just missing the 1 type now
  8. Latest addition to my sixpence type collection, only mid grade but quite attractive and scarce
  9. This no stops on obv 6d I'm considering comes with 2 tickets, anyone recognise the collector / dealer from them?
  10. Sterling work gentlemen! Looked them up online somehow, or in something you have locally?
  11. Thanks Rob - looks like Bull downgraded it to R2 in the latest edition, for what it's worth!
  12. Following on from the popularity of the 'Let's see your copper coins ...' thread, and the recent postings on my question concerning the prevalence of toning in English milled silver, I have started this thread to gawk at pics of toned English milled silver. Anything goes, but attractive natural toning is preferred! Artificially rainbow toned US slabbed tat is specifically discouraged!! Here's a few of mine to get things started My avatar coin, and one of my first (lucky) eBay purchases
  13. Upgrade, pretty little thing ...
  14. Yes, certainly better than the obverse ...
  15. The 1911 proofs are often very nicely toned, due, it is thought by many, to the materials in the box the set came in. Discussed and shown before, but here's mine - I think it's truly beautiful
  16. Thanks Rob - I think this is the SCMB Listing (XM219):
  17. My first hammered Charles II example, comes with an interesting ticket, expressing £5 5s as £5 1/4 ...
  18. Does anyone (else) have one of these? I'm have been finding it extremely difficult to locate these in decent condition (better than GF really) but I'm hopefully about to upgrade this one soon. Seems scarcer than merely 'Scarce' (ESC) to me!
